SNSS New Release Hop - Seek Him Still


Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is celebrating their new stamp release today with a fun blog hop, and I have some designs in the mix! So excited to finally share them with you here. If you just happened on the blog hop because you're a regular reader of my blog, and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog - you'll find a full list of participants there, and all the details you need. If you're already hopping and you arrived here from Bridget's blog you're doing just fine. Be sure not to miss a single stop along the way because we'll be drawing one lucky commenter from a random DT blog to win a $25 credit to the store!!

Seek Him Still

I decided on a clean and simple (CAS) layout for my card, and kept color to a minimum. The collage image is stamped in Brilliance Lightning Black ink, which is a beautiful black and gold mix. I used a stipple brush to apply chalk ink to the image, masking off each area at a time to create the appearance of rays coming from the star. I also used the Grunge Borders diamond stamp to create some interest in the background. The edges of the main panel are painted with gold acrylic paint by Lumiere.


Here's a different angle on the image so you can see the shimmer of the Brilliance ink and gold paint! Shiny!


We'd love for you to come celebrate the new release with us over at the SNSS forum at Splitcoaststampers! There will be challenges posted throughout the day. And prizes!
